Plasticon International, Inc. Subsidiary, SEMCO, Begins Work on $82 Million I-515 Beltway Interchange Project

LEXINGTON, KY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 24, 2007 -- Plasticon International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PLNI) is pleased to announce that their wholly owned subsidiary, SEMCO Manufacturing, Inc., will begin surfacing the concrete embankment on the I-515 Beltway Interchange for the Nevada Department of Transportation. The $241,000 contract calls for the application of SEMCO's proprietary concrete sealants and anti-graffiti coating across a 76,400 square foot span of the interchange.

SEMCO's protective coating system was chosen to prevent the absorption of water into the surface of the bridges, to mitigate the cleanup cost of graffiti, and also for its attractive color schemes. The new interchange joins Interstates 215 and 515 in Henderson, Nevada with a multitude of roads, bridges and ramps. The total cost of the Interchange project is $82,247,827, paid for by a combination of federal, state and local funds.

"We're thrilled to commence with the application of our custom coating surfaces on this highly ambitious project by the Nevada DOT. SEMCO will be adding the finishing touches to the bridge construction and we foresee significant exposure gained as a result. We hope to set the standard for the protection and cosmetic appeal of large-scale concrete construction," stated Jim Turek, President and CEO of Plasticon International, Inc.

Plasticon International, Inc. recently announced that the Company is currently attending the 33rd Annual World of Concrete Expo being held in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 23 through January 26, 2007. Key executives from Plasticon International, Inc. and their subsidiaries will be holding meetings with potential customers and distributors at the show. Plasticon International, Inc. will be exhibiting at booth # S20505.

Based in Las Vegas, SEMCO Manufacturing markets and sells custom surfacing products to high profile commercial, public and private clientele.
